What is web browser cache (web cache)

Cache – temporary files stored on your computer: images, sounds and other elements of web pages that you visited.

When you visit the page again, some of the data is not loaded again, but is taken from the cache – this reduces the loading time of the site.

What does it mean to Clear Cache

In some cases, the page may have new content, but the browser will still load the old page data from the cache, which may lead to incorrect display of the page or a problem with the site (for the user).

Clear cache – is a procedure for deleting saved site data in the browser (on a computer) to force the download of updated data from the site: input forms, markup, images, etc.
